I believe single adults deserve the same rights
and benefits as their married counterparts.
Equal Taxes. Don't believe The Marriage
Penalty Myth. Singles often pay higher taxes and
receive fewer benefits than married taxpayers.
Equal Insurance. Most states allow
marital status to be used as a rating criterion,
allowing to them to charge singles higher rates.
If race, religion, color, and national origin
are not permitted to be used, why should marital
Equal Retirement Benefit Rights. Singles
should be able to designate that their benefits
go to a surviving domestic partner, parent, or
adult child. Today all contributions to a
retirement fund by singles are forfeited if they
die without a spouse or dependent.
Equal Employee Benefits Programs.
Employers often subsidize all or a large portion
of health, dental, vision, and other benefits
for spouses of married employees without giving
similar compensation to unmarried workers in
some other form. Singles should have the option
of receiving these benefits for live-in
partners, roommates, or other dependents, such
as parents or other blood relatives who live
Equal Housing Allocations for single military
personnel. Today a married soldier can get
an additional housing and food subsidy so that
he or she can live off the base with a spouse.
Single soldiers don't get this. Because of their
low pay, they often have to live in barren
barracks on a military base. Single soldiers
perform the same work as married soldiers and
risk their lives just as much. Why are they
being paid less?
Equal Unemployment Benefits. Most states
allow workers to collect unemployment if they
quit their jobs to move to a new area where
their spouse is relocated. Usually these
benefits are not given to a worker who quits to
relocate with a domestic partner.
Equal Travel Costs. The travel industry
is focused on couples and families. Singles
often have to pay the “dreaded singles
supplement,” which can double their cost for a
cabin on a cruise or a hotel room. We encourage
the travel industry to provide rooms and cabins
specifically for singles, at lower cost.
